This was my second visit to Happy Hippo in Durban, as I had come to the town with some friends for an event. We stayed for 3 days. 3 male and 2 female. We stayed in a 6 bed dorm.
I had such fond memories of the place from my previous visit, and simply had to come again. Glad to see that the ever happy, ever smiling staff are still there, and they even remembered my name!! Great to feel welcomed, and to know that theres a place in South Africa you can call home!
Got to meet the amazing Michelle again, and greeted me (and my friend Jon) with as much enthusiasm as the first time we met. Michelle and Michael are one of the pioneers of backpacker hostels in SA today as we know it, and you can see why. Its hard to improve on perfect, but this couple somehow finds ways and means to make this place better.
I am running out of things to complain about, as the two faults i pointed out on my previous visit were already addressed (2 days after i left apparently!!).
Thank you for your hospitality Happy Hippo, and a big hug to all the staff! Keep up the awesome work !
( May i suggest a free welcome drink for frequent fliers ;) ) my only complaint this time.
